Your Fishing Report Mike B and I decided to catch some mid day fishing. We left at around 10:30am from Belle Harbour Marina in Tarpon Springs and for the first 3 hours couldn’t get a bite. We tried on the flats in front of the power plant, out in deeper water and in front of the sand bar. We had no live or cut bait so we threw soft plastic, spoons, jigs and even gulp with no results. Finally we went out to Marker 4, with no result from jigging and casting we started trolling with silver near the crab traps. We finally caught a few keeper mackerel. We then headed over to the area in front of the Anclote park pier and did catch a couple small trout. This was one of the toughest, slowest days of fishing I have experienced in the last couple years. On the way back to port in Tarpon Springs we stopped at a favorite spot and caught a few ladyfish. Mike B landed a really good size one. A slow but good day of fishing, the water was smooth, maybe too smooth and the company was good.

Your Fishing Report I set out of Hudson around noon with Rick U. We fished several locations between Hudson and the Cotee River using artificial bait and lures in about 8-10 feet of 54 degree water. We caught about 10 Spanish Mackerel and a Trout. The most interesting part of the trip was sighting a Cobia resting on the bottom as we drifted in 8 feet of water. He wasn’t interested in our bait, but it was pretty cool to see. I got to try out my lucky “Fish-On” shirt too!
If this report includes a tournament entry please state the species and lenth of the fish caught in this box. Mackerel-various length
Trout-14 inches

Your Fishing Report Fishing with club member Barry inn Brasher Park area.  Had to wait until about 9:15 to have enough water to go out.  Not much of a bit until the water came up.  About 11:00 the black drum found us. We caught 13 keepers up to 23″ along with keeper sheepshead.  We also caught at least a dozen short redfish and some mangrove snapper in the next hour and a half.  Moved off the black drum spot to look for bigger redfish but no luck with that.  Really good day until the cloud cover moved in about 1

  • I left Hudson today with Team Uffalussy. We made a quick stop near the end of the main channel and then proceeded to a spot about 4 miles out from there where we had a good catch in the past. We landed many Macks and some sea bass throwing a variety of plastics, spoons, and live bait. Kept one Bass and some Macks. We then headed south to an area that has a plateau about 4 feet surrounded by 7-9 feet. More Macks there. We drifted from there for some time in water up to 10 feet and 66 degrees. Late in the day I hooked what we estimated to be a 36 inch cobia on a jig head with a chartreuse grub. I brought him to the boat, but after several attempts to net him, he escaped to be caught another day. All in all a fun day of catching.

Your Fishing Report Mike, his visiting friend Dave, and I left the dock at 8:30am. Went N.W. from marker 4 about 20 mile to 45 ft of water. The seas were 2-4 ft swells (occasional 4’s). caught a bunch of grunts some Sea Bass. tried a couple spots around there then went 10 miles S.W. to Jim M spots. There we caught more grunts, a couple short grouper, few nice size Sea Bass. We did not keep any of the catch. Seas flattened out on the way home. It was a beautiful warm day and we had a great time. Chet did introduce Mike and Dave to Capt. Sam Crutchfield by playing his music Fishing music on on the Bluetooth speaker all day. Thank you Mike for a very enjoyable day on the water.

Your Fishing Report Mike T and myself  left boat ramp out of Anclote at 9:00 a.m., fished the out going tide and not a bite and we tried 4 different spots. As soon as the tide changed we were catching everything. Lots of nice size  tarpon ( ladies) and at least 25-30  small trout, 3  gag grouper, and only 1 Spanish mackerel.

We ended up in front of Howard park, and all of a sudden out of no where come this crab buoy  coming towards the front of the boat very fast, what a site to see. Now you must watch the video below to see  what we saw. We will probably never see this again.

Thanks Mike  for a great day  on the water.
